Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Vyākula (व्याकुल) refers to “agitation”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.4.—Accordingly, as the Gods eulogized Umā (Durgā/Satī) with devotion:—“[...] Formerly you were born as the daughter of Dakṣa and were married to Śiva. You destroyed the great misery of Brahmā and others. Being disrespected by your father, you cast off your body in accordance with your vow. You then went to your own world and Śiva became miserable. O great Goddess, the purpose of the gods has not been completely carried out. The sages are agitated [i.e., vyākula]. Hence we, Gods, have sought refuge in you. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
